As more and more women are growing their wealth, they are turning to financial advisors who can help them plan for their future. Many of the disadvantages that their grandmothers faced in the workplace and the home have been overcome, allowing women to build their own wealth and gain financial independence. Financial independence allows women to pursue their own goals and live life on their own terms.

Financial advisors who are women themselves are better equipped to understand the challenges women can face, because they occupy the same space in society. In the United States today, women control roughly $14 trillion worth of wealth, yet only 15% to 20% of financial advisors are women. Thankfully, women in Tampa, Florida, can turn to ProVise Management Group for experienced financial advisors who can help other women manage their wealth.
